I noticed that my IP address was hacked. My Internet connection has become very slow and it looks like he has access to my data. How can I stop this? Even a temporarily solution would help right now.

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

The first things to look at are..What type of security is running on your router in any. Do you have a strong password; meaning upper and lower case plus special characters? It may be they  gained access using a key logger. Your best bet would be if you have access to  clean computer, directly hook it up to the router and change your network password. Then run a good anti-virus program on the infected computer before you try connecting to the internet again.

    How does it possible to access data without knowing password (assuming you asked for Wi-Fi connection) You can immediately changed your Wi-Fi password with more complex one and scan your system with a good anti virus (hope this is already there). It is better to scan/ clean your system with MWAV (an emergency scan/clean tool) in safe mode to get more fruitful result. Once you assure, there is no viruses, you must change all passwords (including login) as well as Wi-Fi/internet related.
